Why should you attend?

When developing a new PVC product or using a new machine / production line, many processing difficulties arise. These can be solved by adjusting the formulation with a better selection of additives. However, in the current regulatory environment, the use of some of the PVC additives has been limited affecting the production of the final product as well as the possibility of recycling existing products…

Find the right additive (thermal stabilizers, waxes, plasticizers, fillers…) for your formulation by understanding the importance of each additive and how they affect final properties depending on the type of PVC and final application (profiles, piping, vinyl flooring and WPC decking, wire coating…).

  • Get a comprehensive overview of the nature and behavior of each additive (resin types, key additives…) in the PVC formulation

  • Select the most suitable additive, according to final properties and applications, processing technology, applicable legislation

  • Detect the additivation needs of each type of PVC (rigid, semi-rigid, or plasticized) according to its final application

  • Troubleshoot your PVC formulation challenges with practical tips from our expert Raquel Llorens

Who should attend?

  • PVC formulators and R&D personnel working in companies that work by extruding or injecting PVC
  • Raw material producers & suppliers of additives and fillers can also benefit from this course
